The Best Cruise Deals Get Even Better

An eCruises.com Innovative Exclusive Offers Full Complimentary Cruise Insurance Protection and Vacation Coverage on All New Bookings

DANBURY, CT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 20, 2005 -- Cruising holidays without a care in the world. Your cruising vacation can now give you more peace of mind. eCruises.com, a leading national cruise retailer, is the only cruise retailer offering full complimentary cruise vacation insurance coverage on all new cruise bookings for each and every passenger traveling.

eCruises.com's insurance protection is provided by iTravelInsured (iTI), so cruise passengers are covered for cruise interruption and cancellation, emergency medical and dental expenses, emergency medical evacuation, travel delay, and baggage delays and losses. This begins from the moment you walk out your door for your cruise, until you return home.

It's hard to put a price on a perfect, worry-free vacation, but let's examine the true value. On average, for a $1,000-cruise, the cost of cruise insurance provided free by eCruises.com is $110 per person. The benefits are generous. eCruises.com offers up to $20,000 per person for emergency medical evacuation, up to $1,000 per person for lost baggage, and up to $10,000 for emergency medical or dental expenses.

"The price we give is what you get," says Mike Ripka, CEO. eCruises.com is the only national retailer with one price up front that includes everything required to get on board all cruise ships...the cruise, port charges (NCFs), government taxes and fees, plus complimentary insurance. There are never any hidden costs or service fees.
